Wrox was slammed by the user groups for these books with ten authors. They've gotten smarter: now they only put one photograph on the cover. But that misses the point; the book is still more a collection of essays by different writers than a book.
There are parts of this book that are fairly good, but overall it does not cover the material coherently, and it is 25-50% bigger than it should be for the material covered.
There are better choices elsewhere. I just posted a review for the O'Reilly book, which I think is a much better choice.

This book is fine,, though I won't say its a great book..
the really good C# book I found was Inside C#,
some chapters stand out but in some places this bok just loses flow.
The best book for C# is C#:Primer Plus.

Hi,
There's a lot of mixed reviews about this book . The table contents promises to give a lot of information which it does but not efficiently . I am C++ programmer ,the intial chapters are easy to understand since they are basic oops that I already know .. and the intial chapters on windows and asp was good I felt becoz I had worked on my own before I went thro this . After that it was tooo much of information not written well .In the sense you just keep reading without undestanding half of it becoz the author's expect you to know all the concepts and they confuse what you know by puttting it in words that are so confusing . The flow of thought if missing ...

The book is a great book for new comers to the C# language and to the .NET platform itself as well. It is kind of scattered about, not very much flow to it. Overall the I would highly recommend it to any one wanting to learn to language.

I have to agree with the previous reviewers who say this book is not up to Wrox standards. This book is "all over the place", meaning there's little cohesion between chapters. This is probably because of all of the authors involved. It makes reading it very confusing.
Here's a specific example. When discussing struct's vs. classes, the book starts talking about how memory allocation is different for each, and they referred to an earlier discussion of memory. I didn't recall them discussing memory earlier in the book, so I looked it up in the index. They had given it a sentence or two - obviously written by another author, and not intended to provide the depth later assumed.
Unfortunately, I have purchased 3 C# books, and they're all weak. This, though, is the weakest. I gave "C# Bible" 2 stars as well, but I actually think that's a better book.

Perhaps I'm writing this prematurely, as I'm not even close to being done with the book. But so far, I've found it to be a good book. I at first got a copy of _Learning C#_, and that was useless, aimed at a first time programmer. So I returned it and got this one.
This book has a lot of useful topics. If some of the later ones aren't that great, oh well, I'll still be happy.
I notice that some readers complain about typos. Usually, that doesn't bother me much--if the explanation is clear, spotting and ignoring typos isn't too hard.

This book does have good information if you are new to C# but do not expect to get the examples off the web as the book promises. The website is not providing the promised downloads and only collecting email addresses for future notification.
The book has worked well for me as a .NET reference guide but I wouldn't have bought this volume if I had known about the lack of promised support.

This book has nothing to do with professional!
I spend hours to get rid of the "bugs" this book put into my programs. A lot of mistakes throughout the whole book.
And also the topics are only scratching the surface and one is not really learning something (new).
There are a lot of C# books out there - don't buy this one.
